Infographic

Information graphics or infographics are visual


representations of information, data or knowledge.

These graphics are used where complex information


needs to be explained quickly and clearly.
Visual presentation of information is a powerful tool.
Sometimes a complex concept can be more quickly
understood with the use of infographics than through
words.

What is an infographic?

1. It's a visual explanation that helps you more easily understand, find or
do something.
2. It's visual, and when necessary, integrates words and pictures in a
fluid, dynamic way.
3. It stands alone and is completely self-explanatory.
4. It reveals information that was formerly hidden or submerged.
5. It makes possible faster, more consistent understanding.
6. It's universally understandable.
